From One Quick Project To The Next

Over my mini-vacation at the Kalahari this past weekend, I decided to pack a ball of chenille yarn to start working on a washcloth. I started it on Friday night, and it was finished on Sunday. I love projects like that!

I'm not a fan of chenille, but I think that its use here will be nice. The overall pattern is nice also, though I will make a few modifications if I make another one.

After finishing this project, I started thinking about what to knit next. I have a big project (a green wrap) on the needles right now, and I have a rule against working on two large projects at the same time. So, for a bit of inspiration, I brought out my stash.

And boy, do I have a lot of yarn (I even left some at my parent's house!). There is more yarn in the Target bag in the corner, which contains remnants from past projects which will be used at a future date for wacky scarf/blanket/whatever.

I really like small projects but I've knit so many hats and scarves that I'm not really inspired to make anything at the moment. Of course I have plans and ideas for some of my yarn, but I want to be enthusiastic about the project that I am working on.

So for the moment, I am waiting for the spirit to give me a vision. Hopefully I'll have something fun to work on by the time I leave for my big trip in two weeks. I'll keep you posted...
